I was soooooo anoying my friend took me hours to fix it yes it was a virus and its stopped my windows from updating so i downloaded a new windows security center and that just made it worse it kept reseting i had about 40 seconds everytime it restarted to try and remove the new program so after about 2 hours i managed to do it
I have the best scanners and anti-virus but still cant get my windows updates to work stupid computers
I've had it happen several times and it's soo frustrating!!
The thing I would recommend now, I know it's extreme and a big ol' hassle! But if you have all your stuff backed up. You might want to consider a complete system restore, which makes your computer just like the day you bought it. All their propaganda on it, and none of your programs or files on it.
You'll have to reinstall everything back on your computer, including ALL the windows updates and your virus protection, but it's really the only way to get off all the remnants of the virus, unless you're a total geek and can go file by file in the registry and remove it completely.
